The most interesting thing I've worked on in my career so far...
In my entire career as a Military Intelligence Analyst my most memorable experience was training analysts whilst out on operational duty. It was a great test of my resilience and strength and a memory I will take with me forever.
What inspired me into digital and tech...
I’m in awe of the backend work behind what you see as a user of the technology. Having broad knowledge for a number of customers, lends itself very well as a match made in heaven. I'm loving the challenge of contributing to keeping the UK safe in a different way.
My educational background is...
I started out as a photographer, went to uni - got the t.shirt. Had my heart broken & went into the military as an Intelligence Analyst, years of training including being an analyst instructor led me to the Civil Service & now Project Management after studying both agile and waterfall methods & getting the quals.
What advice I'd give to girls thinking about a career in digital and tech...
If you're thinking about it, do it. I'm 39 & still don't know what I want to do when I grow up. Whatever you do, do it well. If something didn't work out by trying it, there are always steps you can take to change your life & how you live it.
